Hi everyone, okay, I’m continuing my series “similar, but different” using the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper. I hope that if you have some of this paper, you have been inspired to get it out and use it! I’m still working through this paper pack so you can expect to see more cards.
I coloured the main image using Pumpkin Pie, Pale Papaya, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I then fussy cut the image and a few butterflies too. They were put aside as I moved on to creating the card base.
The card base was made from Pale Papaya cardstock and then embossed with one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. Love that set. I adhered a panel of Basic White cardstock which had been die cut using both the Stitched Greenery die and the Deckled Rectangle dies. I sponged some Pale Papaya ink around the edges of this piece before adhering it directly to the card base.
The sentiment, from the Charming Sentiments stamp set, was stamped in Versamark ink on some Basic Grey cardstock and then white heat-embossed. It was then die cut using the Sentiment Silhouettes die set.
Next, I assembled the card. The deckled panel and flowers were adhered directly to the card front and I popped up the butterflies and the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Bitty Sparkles and some Clear Shimmer Brush (from Close to My Heart).
I decided to see if I could add the appearance of dimension to the Basic White panel so gently coloured around the edge with a grey coloured pencil.
Here’s the card…
This was a fun card to make. What I didn’t say at the start of my post is that this image was from the side of the paper sheet and parts of it were cut off. I simply adhered the image flush against the edge of my card base. Easy!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
